Bitcoin Segwit Activation-The Gold Cartels Worst Nightmare

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:
Not that its experience is any different from the countless “empires” that destroyed themselves from within; but let’s face it, America is rapidly morphing into a Banana Republic.

And not just in terms of its monetary policy – as the leader, in the “race to the bottom,” of the terminal phase of history’s largest; most destructive; and for the first time, global; fiat Ponzi scheme. Unfortunately, the symptoms of the disease are widespread, affecting the political, economic, and social landscape – all by-products of the complacency, self-indulgence, and arrogance created by the false sense of superiority the “reserve currency” issuer temporarily enjoys, in ephemerally living far above its means. Unfortunately, aside from the inexorable secular headwinds pounding against America’s rapidly waning dominance – like the global population explosion, unfavorable demographic trends, and synchronous worldwide information dissemination – America’s exposure to the gargantuan, historic cyclical downturn its own policies caused, is as broad, and systematically dangerous, as any nation’s. And not just absolutely; but more importantly, relative to the sky-high, “sixth sigma” standard of living its fleeting stint as reserve currency issuer has enabled.

In Furious, Bizarre Tweetstorm Trump Slams Leaks, “Amazon Post”, “Failing NYT”, Hillary, GOP Senators

0

from ZeroHedge:
Trump may have broken a personal tweetstorm record on Saturday morning, when starting shortly after 6:30am, in a furious blast of ten tweets (and still going), Trump lashed out at the “Amazon Washington Post”, the “failing New York Times”, touched on his right to pardon, questioned why the Attorney General isn’t looking at the “many Hillary Clinton or Comey crimes” and the “33,000 emails deleted”, asked “what about the Clinton ties to Russia including Podesta Company, Uranium deal, Russian reset, big dollar speeches”, compared Donald Jr.’s email disclosure to Hillary Clinton’s email deletion “and acid wash” of her 33,000 emails, slammed “dead ObamaCare”, and finally (at least for now) slammed both Republican senators who must “step up to the plate and vote to Repeal and Replace”, as well as Democrat Senators who are “obstructionists, no ideas or votes.”

The tweet that has attracted the most media attention so far, is Trump’s assertion that he has “complete power to pardon” following reports that he was discussing his ability to pardon people in the ongoing investigation into ties between his campaign and Russia. “While all agree the U. S. President has the complete power to pardon, why think of that when only crime so far is LEAKS against us.FAKE NEWS.”

How Mises University Became America’s Most Important Economics Program – Peter Diekmeyer

by Peter Diekmeyer, Sprott Money:
Global debts are rising, as is economic inequality. Bubbles abound. The Bank for International Settlements is warning of a potential synchronized financial collapse. Capitalism, particularly the richest 1{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} who have benefited from rising asset prices, appear set to take the blame.

Is that smart?

Not so, says Jeff Deist, President of the Mises Institute, which will be hosting 150 students from around the world this Sunday in Auburn, Alabama, for a week-long session about free market economics.

“Mises was one of the giants of the 20 th century economics,” says Deist. “Yet his works are being systematically kept out by academic gatekeepers. Students who come to “Mises University” will learn more in one week about economics than they would in four years at an Ivy League program.”

War On Independent Media Explodes To Orwellian Levels – What Are You Going To Do When Your Favorite Websites Are Gone?

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:
Google’s YouTube censorship practices have increased since the election of President Trump, to the point where their liberal “flaggers” are able to get videos removed from the public eye, demonetized, and in many cases creators’ entire channels completely disappear in restricted mode when reporting on the very same topics the MSM does, just not toeing their “official” narrative.

YOUTUBE ALLOWING ‘FLAGGER’ ABUSE OF THE SYSTEM TO CENSOR CERTAIN VIEWS

We will start with the latest example of YouTube allowing their “flaggers” or even worse, their “bots” to determine what gets seen and what doesn’t according to ideology, rather than “community guidelines.”

How Digital Nomads Improve Cities

by Joe Jarvis, The Daily Bell:
Where are you from?

 
Seems like a simple question. As I have been traveling recently outside of the U.S. it has come up a lot.
 
When someone asks me where I’m from, I want to rattle off some stats. Where I was born, where I moved to; I name the broader regions and the closest cities.
 
I am from Massachusetts, outside of Boston, but I moved to Florida. No, nowhere near Miami or Orlando. On the Panhandle, basically lower Alabama.
 
My answer was never the U.S.A. because that is too broad. It doesn’t give much information. Most people asking where I was from assumed I was from the U.S.A. and were curious to know from which region I hailed.
